Agricultural Classifications in County App

 Reject Reason in County App
  • The following “Reject Reason” choices will no longer be allowed: "1-old sale", "13-duplicate CRV", "28-nursing homes”, and “28-manufactured home parks”.

Web Services Documents


Although the documents have already changed, the documented web services changes will not be available for testing in the sandbox until September 23. The following documents have been changed:

  • XSD ecrvBaseTypes
  • WSDL DownloadService
  • WSDL RouteService
  • WSDL SearchService
  • WSDL UpdatePropertyAttributeService
  • WSDL UploadService

 County Application

  • Currently the “Unaccepted” tab shows eCRVs that have been accepted by the county and then unaccepted back to the submitter. The screen will be expanded to show and label two additional types:
    • eCRVs that are awaiting initial acceptance by the county
    • eCRVs that were rejected by the county and never initially accepted

State Application

  • "Market Value" in the search results will now show the “Total Market Value” from the county version of the eCRV
  • Search results in the State app will be sortable by a new “Submission Date” column
  • County Assessment data will be added to the "State eCRV" tab

Public Search

  • When searching for non-residential eCRVs, you will now be able to search multiple counties at once. If the property use or property type is residential, you will still have to search by one county.

5.5 Update: Published on June 24, 2016 


The sandbox is now open for testing the 5.5 update.

  • Retrieve Edit PIN - Submitters will be able to retrieve their Edit PIN through the eCRV website if he or she forgot or lost it. Instead of calling or emailing the eCRV Support Team, submitters will click a link and answer several questions about the eCRV that was entered. After providing correct information, the Edit PIN will be provided to the submitter. This will apply to the 8-digit Edit PIN for submitted eCRVs.
  • Removal of Deed Tax Calculator - This change will complete the process of fully removing the deed tax calculator from the county application.
  • Sequence Number Validation Rule - This change will create a validation rule for entry of sequence numbers by county users in the "Sequence ID" column. Only positive whole integers and 0 will be allowed.
  • Web Services Accepted Indicator - This update will impact the "CountyAccepted_Indicator" in the download web service so that it aligns with the "CountyAccepted_DateTime" indicator. The change will ensure that both indicators will either both be True or both be False. Web Services documentation will not be updated due to this change.



5.4 Patch Update: Published on January 29, 2016 

  • Property Type requirement - County users will no longer be required to enter the "Property Type" field. The "Property Type Group" will remain required. Because of how the property dropdowns were previously organized, this change has caused "Property Type Group" to be a new code field for Web Services called "PropertyGroupCde." This field will always be present in the Web Services download and "PropertyType" may still be present as it is an optional field. The following Web Services documents have been changed based upon this new code:

    • ecrvBaseTypes

    • ecrvTypes

    • DownloadService WSDL

    • RouteService WSDL

    • SearchService WSDL

    • UpdatePropertyAttributeService WSDL

    • UploadService WSDL

    • Web Service API reference.

  • Public Search application - This fixes a problem where eCRVs accepted in the first 12 hours or the last 12 hours of the month were not being included in the search results list.

  • Web Services – This fixes a problem where a download call could fail in certain circumstances.  The temporary workaround had been to check the "Use Codes Corrected or Verified" box.
  • Web Services – Updated Web Service documents to include deed type codes "PERREPDEED" and "SPECWARNTY" and adjustment type code "SPECASESSMT." These codes were added to the code tables earlier in 2015 but were not included in the Web Services documents. The affected Web Service documents are:
    • WSDLDownloadService WSDL
    • WSDLSearchService WSDL
    • WSDLUploadService WSDL
    • WSDLUpdatePropertyAttributeService WSDL
    • WSDLRouteService WSDL
  • Web Services – Property program codes AGP-M and AGP-NM were causing failures on download.  The codes are being changed to AGP_M and AGP_NM on all eCRVs which have these programs indicated.  This will be reflected in the web services implementation of ecrvBaseTypes.
  • County application – Fixes a problem where deprecated property type codes A00, B00, D00 were still being included in the pick list.  These codes will still appear in existing eCRVs, but will not be available for selection on new eCRVs.
  • County application – The "Assess Year of Values Given" field is becoming a required field. Currently the land and building value fields are required and this change aligns with the overall intent of this data area.
    • Please note that all CRVs that are in county workflows at the time of this update will have "2015" auto-populated in this field to prevent them inadvertently erroring out. This will only be done to CRVs that are in the county workflows; all future CRVs will not be auto-populated but the field will be a required field.
  • County and City applications – Eliminates the ability for local staff to re-enable the deed tax display.  The display was already turned off in all counties.
  •  All applications – Fixes a problem where the rule that deed acreage must be numeric was not being enforced.
